Set up & Starting position (standing)
Place your feet hip width apart, stand close enough that the weight is just in front of your shins. Bent over and grip the weight at shoulder width apart with an overhand grip.
Lift the chest and take a deep breath to brace the core. Retract shoulder blades and position weight next to the shins.
Pull weight upward extending hips and straightening the torso.
Return to the starting position, flex your hips, pushing them back, then bend your legs as the bar reaches knee level, keeping the bar close to your body. Repeat.
